This Was the One Thing Missing From Beyoncé's Glorious Grammys Vision

This Was the One Thing Missing From Beyoncé's Glorious Grammys Vision

"Adele and Beyoncé having a Mean Girls moment is pretty much all I needed in 2017", one Twitter user wrote. "Hello" is Adele's second song to win Song Of The Year at the #GRAMMYs.

Beyoncé's epic celebration of motherhood masquerading as a humble Grammys performance stunned the audiences both at the Staples Center and those watching from home and it's no wonder - the performance was the longest and most elaborate of the 20 that the awards ceremony boasted that night.

Adele won all five Grammys for which she was nominated, including for her comeback album "25" and her single "Hello".

The Beyhive has a brand new target after Carlos Santana gave his take on why Adele won multiple Grammys on Sunday night while Beyonce did not. Understandable! She's an exceptional performer who's flawless 98 percent of the time, so it wasn't surprising that she wanted to properly pay tribute to the gone-too-soon pop great, even if it meant starting over. "We have been blessed two times over", she captioned a photo of herself, clad in lingerie, holding her pregnant belly.

"Blackstar", his final album released days after he died, also won best alternative music album, rock performance, and engineered album, non-classical (Bowie is listed as one of the engineers on "Blackstar.") In the latter category, he beat out Prince, who also died a year ago.

During an interview with the Australian Associated Press earlier this week (begs13Feb17), the guitarist stated the Formation vocalist was "not a singer-singer" but added she is "beautiful to look at". Unhappy with how her performance of his 1996 hit "Fastlove" was going, she abruptly asked to start over.

"I found him to be one of the truest icons", she said.

Their competition for album of the year aside from Simpson includes Drake's multihit "Views" and Justin Bieber's redemption album "Purpose". At one point the tribute could have included Beyoncé and Rihanna. "There have been over 200 black artist [s] who have performed". Chance the Rapper will perform with Kirk Franklin, who won two awards, including best gospel album and gospel performance/song for writing "God Provides" for Tamela Mann. Thankfully, Kanye West wasn't there to rush the stage this time around and declare Beyonce the victor anyway.
